Here is the latest fishing report for the Potholes Reservoir by Annie Meseberg at MarDon Resort:
Cooling weather this week has only helped the walleye, bass and perch bite on Potholes Reservoir. Jumbo crappie 12 inches and larger have been caught by many fishers trolling at the mouth of Crab Creek and the face of the sand dunes. Our water level continues to rise two to three inches a day.
Sand dune bass fishers are beginning to report good largemouth action from the Crab Creek Area, Goose Island, and the face of O’Sullivan Dam. The Lind Coulee is also showing some nice smallmouth bass action. Blade Baits are still producing walleye limits for boaters from many different areas on Potholes Reservoir.
Opening Day of waterfowl season was a duck hunters dream on Potholes Reservoir. We had winds gusting up to 40 MPH which kept the birds on the move. All parties that enjoyed hunting with The Duck Taxi on opening day enjoyed many local ducks. For more information on duck hunting on Potholes Reservoir with The Duck Taxi please visit our website www.ducktaxi.com or call the reservation line at MarDon Resort (509) 346-2651.
